Aston Villa: LDLLL

Watford: LLWWL

False dawn for Villa

Remi Garde will go in search of his first win as Aston Villa manager when his side goes head-to-head with Watford at Villa Park on Saturday.

The recent draw at home to Manchester City may have given false hope to some Villa Fans, but the emphatic 4-0 defeat to Everton would have given them a stark reminder of the clubs current predicament.

However, an instant fix was always out of the question and the club must now try to get its recovery back on track when they face a Watford side that has suffered two defeats on the bounce.

Watford keeping clear of danger

Hornets boss Quique Sanchez Flores has been universally praised for the job he has done since arriving at the newly-promoted side. Despite recent defeats to Leicester City and Manchester United, the Hertfordshire team still retains a seven-point cushion over the teams in the relegation zone.


Goal-shy Villa have scored just ten goals all season and have failed to find the net in three of their last four home games in the league. To make matters worse, striker Gabriel Agbonlahor is likely to miss this clash.

Watford are by no means big scorers but eight of their 12 goals have been scored on the road. The away side should edge this game but it is unlikely to be a high-scoring encounter. Back Watford to Win to Nil at 10/3 with Bet365.

Odion Ighalo has scored seven of Watford’s 12 goals this season and five of those have been scored away from home. You can back the Nigerian to find the net anytime at 9/4 with Betfair.
